We brought our bikes so the hotel staff put us in a corner room near the patio which was nice. We were also near the ice machine, Easy check it, our keys were waiting for us at the front office. Easy check in, our keys were waiting for us at the front office. It was a no frills hotel so there were no amenities, no room service, nor no house cleaning. So it was pretty basic. When wet the outdoor area becomes very slippery.

This was the best ever, felt right at home. The staff was wonderful. Management so professional and helpful. Place is so clean and comfortable so peaceful my family loved it and I will definitely stay here again and recommend anybody to go there for a family vacation,thank you so much.

We stay at this hotel three nights. The room was very comfortable. There is a long uphill hike up to the hotel. Because of covid, our room was not cleaned every day and supplies such as coffee, was not stocked daily. After the second day in the morning, we asked if we could get another packet of coffee. We were told they would put another packet of coffee in our room that day. When we got back to our room early that evening there was no coffee. We called and asked for the coffee. The employee answering the phone was very rude and hung up on us. However, we did get the coffee.

I luv this place it was just what me and my fiance wanted it was nice and clean very respectful the staff and will rent this place again soon

Amazing view! The neighbor to the Hotel have deer in their backyard. And we saw several deer around the area. Was really awesome. Great room. Full Kitchen with everything you need to cook and brand new BBQs outside. We will definitely be back. Also fell in love with a little black and white Kitty that hangs around. She was a sweet baby! Just a downright awesome place!

The room was clean and comfortable. Front desk employee was friendly and helpful. If you have a lot of heavy luggage, you should opt for a taxi ride up the hill to hotel and back to boat later. The walls were pretty thin and the refrigerator made loud noises. I stayed in room 103 which did not have a nice view, but I would definitely stay again if the price was right!

Nice view and love that it was walking distance from everything.

Simple and cozy, relaxing. Nice patio area for cooking out or to just enjoy morning coffee.

Quiet neighborhood with nice view of Avalon. Staff was extremely hospitable and went above and beyond to help make our stay comfortable.

Good location. Fair value. Very clean. Would choose as a place to stay on a return visit.

We loved our stay at El Terado Terrace. The room was clean and very roomy. Great view, too. Loved having a kitchenette in the room. We would have loved having a bathtub, but that is a minor inconvenience. As others have noted, the hotel is up a hill. We didn't mind it, but if you have any mobility issues, it is something to keep in mind. We would recommend this place to others.

Perfect space, clean room, nice staff. I was able to add a second night without any problems. It’s located on top of a steep hill, so the walk up and down might get a little annoying, but aside from that, everything was great.

If you don't have a golf cart, get ready for some exercise because it is quite the uphill walk. That said, nice hotel. Great staff. Room was very nice. Only thing was the air conditioner. We had a very hard time getting the room to a comfortable temp. Would love to stayed longer. Definitely recommend. Hope to stay there again.

Loved the price!! The walk up the hill to the room was good excercise. A bit inconvenient with small children.

The hotel is great, the only thing is the hallway leading to the restroom and restroom walls can use a good wipe.

Very nice hotel, very clean, very friendly staff, and within walking distance to everything.

SUPER charming for the price. extra points for the wild deer outside our windows down below. Beds are cozy and also a nice ocean view. the walk up hill is easy n short. also its super duper quiet.
